Is postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) common?

No, thankfully. Severe PPHs occur in about 2% of deliveries. The womb has a criss cross network of muscle fibres that surround blood vessels so that they help the vessels to stop bleeding when they contract down. The staff with you will check you frequently after you''ve had the baby to make sure that your womb has reduced in size to a firm ''ball'', and that you are not losing excess blood vaginally.
